Predators can continue recent run of success vs. Canucks

Oct 31, 2006 - 3:39 PM Nashville (6-3-1) at Vancouver (7-4-1) 10:00 pm EST

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- The Nashville Predators have benefited from Jason Arnott's experience and are looking to make bigger strides in the Western Conference.

Arnott tries to build upon his first multi-goal effort of the season, when the Predators go for their seventh win in eight outings Tuesday against the Vancouver Canucks.

Signed as a free agent after playing four seasons with the Dallas Stars, Arnott set career highs in assists (44) and points (76), while topping the 30-goal mark for the second time in 2005-2006.

Arnott, who scored the Stanley Cup-clinching goal for the New Jersey Devils in 2000, has five tallies and five assists for Nashville to trail Martin Erat by one point for the team lead. He netted two goals in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Calgary Flames.

After winning three times on a five-game road swing, the Canucks returned home Friday to post a 3-2 shootout victory over the Washington Capitals.

Markus Naslund and Brendan Morrison scored in the shootout and Taylor Pyatt added his sixth on a power play for Vancouver, which had a 16-1 edge in shots on goal in the first period and 15-2 in the third.

The Canucks are looking for their second win over Nashville since October 21, when the rallied for a 4-3 overtime triumph. Morrison tied the score with 1:40 left in regulation and Lukas Krajicek netted the game-winner.
